I'm a new middle art teacher trying to prove my case of what a student would learn during the creative processes of animating a film short. Animation gurus out there, do you have any animating experiences you could please share to add to my case? - Thank you so much!

Students do their animation and then video the television screen it is done in order to transfer to a computer to edit and add other effects to it. Besides the obvious problems with this, the video lunch box only holds 255 shots!
Looking for recommendations of affordable…Continue

Artists use lines and shapes differently to obtain the desired physical appearance and composition. The final effect of lines and shapes is intended to portray the intended message by the artist (Mirzoeff 53). In the Mystery Cult of Bacchus and Funerary Vessel of the Dipylon cemetery, it can be observed that the respective artists use shapes and lines to pass out different messages. In the…Continue

Using thread, I suspended a helicopter bearing plate from a broom over my set. I did not have a good way to adjust the length of the thread, so I used several layers of thick cloth (socks) on one side of the broom to allow the plate to descend toward the stage.
Using Dragonframe's increments on a bezier curve, I got the plate to do some vaguely reasonable side to side motion as it came down.
Special thanks to my…Continue

It seems Dragonframe cannot do this, but the effect can be simulated by merging some images in post processing. Here's a suggestion for how to handle the images in Dragonframe:…Continue
